Report
What is the SQRP?
 The School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP) is the Board of
Education’s policy for evaluating school performance.
 It establishes the indicators of school performance and
growth and the benchmarks against which a school’s
success will be evaluated on an annual basis.
 Through this policy, each school will receive a School
Quality Rating and an Accountability Status.

Key changes in new policy
“Old” Performance Policy
SY14-15 School Quality Rating Policy
• Metrics centered on assessments,
attendance, and progress towards
graduation
•
Metrics better aligned to district’s
strategic action plan, e.g., college
enrollment, persistence, priority student
group growth, 5Essentials

•
Five-tier rating to more effectively
differentiate schools
• Evaluates Option schools using traditional
high school metrics
•
New Option School model more

•
Significant changes to ISAT in next few
years makes it unstable for year to year
comparisons; replace with NWEA MAP

•
Performance benchmarks are tied to
national standards where possible
• Does not account for test participation
•
Target test participation rate of 95%
